I've recently been looking into the "More With Less" Cookbook that my generous Mom-in-law gave me a couple of years ago. I'm kind of regretting that I haven't explored it earlier. It is very helpful if you're looking to eat more whole foods and less processed things.
I had this interesting-yet-simple recipe dog-eared, we had apples and sweet potatoes to use up, so I gave this a try:
Sausage-Sweet Potato Bake:
Brown in skillet: 1 lb. bulk sausage.
Break up large pieces and drain off excess fat.
Arrange in 2 qt. casserole:
2 medium raw sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced (I used 5 small, making this fit in a 9x13 pan)
3 medium apples, peeled and sliced (I used 2, just preference of sweet potato/apple ratio)
Combine and pour over:
2 T. sugar (I 1 1/2-ed all sauce ingredients to account for the larger pan -- and I used honey)
1 T. flour
1/4 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. water
Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 50-60 minutes, or until apples and sweet potatoes are tender.
It is a very FALL dish, I'll say that. But surprisingly tasty!
And it fit the mood of our overcast, rainy day well.
Nate said to put it on the "make again" list. :)
